    2008 Infiniti QX56 Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Infiniti QX56

    • It has remarkably good steering, handling and braking for such a big fella. Helping out here are chrome wheels fitted with big 18-inch tires, traction and anti-skid control systems and anti-lock brakes.

      - MSN Autos
    • The cargo area is large, and second- and third-row seats fold flat for more cargo space.

    • ...the QX56 doesn't drive awkwardly despite its size and weight. It has remarkably good steering, handling and braking for such a big fella.

      - MSN Autos
    • We were pleased to find that the engine still felt powerful and smooth, even as it launched the nearly 5,500-pound QX56.

      - Edmunds.com
    • As expected, standard features are plentiful, including 18-inch chrome wheels, HID headlights, Bluetooth connectivity, leather seating for seven, real wood trim, a DVD-based navigation system, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control, a separate rear air conditioner, one-touch power windows and a power rear liftgate.

    What reviewers liked least about the Infiniti QX56

    • None of these big guys are cheap. The QX56 costs $47,700 with rear-drive and $50,400 with all-wheel drive...

      - MSN Autos
    • Fuel economy of the QX56 is not something to be talked about in polite company, although the same can be said for the economy of its rivals. This Infiniti gets an estimated 13 mpg in the city and 19 on the highway with rear-wheel drive and 13 and 18 with all-wheel drive.

      - MSN Autos
    • A thick B-pillar blocks over-left-shoulder visibility.

      - Cars.com
    • Of course, an SUV the size of Rhode Island packed with all the amenities of your family room doesn't come cheap.

      - Edmunds.com
    • ...the leather upholstery, beautiful wood trim and handsomely stitched and well-padded armrests boost the luxury quotient considerably over the bland Armada's...But some low-grade components, notably the dull gauge cluster and the hard plastic used on the doors and dash top, bring it down when compared to its more lavishly appointed competitors.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Big as it feels on the inside, the QX56 has less maximum cargo capacity than an Escalade or Navigator, with just over 97 cubic feet of space.

      - Edmunds.com
    • The Infiniti's second row is particularly roomy, beating the Cadillac and Lincoln by more than three inches in second-row legroom. Indeed, the second row of the QX56 feels like sitting in first class.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • The Infiniti QX56...is rated to tow 8,900-9,000 pounds. Nissan's 5.6-liter 32-valve engine generates more torque than the V8s in the 2006 Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. The Lexus LX470 and Toyota Sequoia can't compete with the Infiniti's towing capability.
